Contact us today


friendlymovingmen-removalist-melbourne-housePay only what you need

We offer a flexible pricing structure so you only pay for the help you need.

Other Melbourne packing services have their prices begin at a 4-hour minimum. But we know it doesn’t take 4 hours to pack a kitchen or bedroom, and we don’t charge like it does. Our prices begin at 2 hours, so we cater to all people regardless of whether you live in a four-bedroom house or a bedsit.

Free boxes! Full box refunds for all our packing clients!

When we pack for you we add on the cost of our boxes to the bill. You then you have a two week window to return these boxes for a full refund. If you’d like to keep some boxes that’s totally fine too! We only charge for the boxes you decide to hang onto after your move. We also supply free bubble wrap, wrapping paper, and other materials to ensure your belongings won’t be damaged. Please have a look at our online shop for all our box prices.

Please note: every move is unique and the tables above are an estimate only. We approach each pack with the care and diligence you’d hope was paid to your belongings. Your pack may take more time or less, depending on a multitude of factors. Have a priceless China or Star Wars figurine collection? We’re going to want to be extra careful with that. Have a house filled with nothing but cushions? We’re not judging, but that’s probably going to take a lot less effort packing.
